My Special Floury Valentine

My Special Floury Valentine

You touch my lips with yours.
Your chocolate coats the roof
of my mouth.  Your sponge
crumbles with the proof

of my desire.  I press on
regardless, searching for the core
of your love, so soft and melting,
the sweet heart that makes me long for more.

Biscuit: Spezialitaten, Jaffa cake cousins but with cream and an apricot centre
Taste test: 9.5 out of 10
Cost: A present from lovely Jamie

Hound of the Biscuitvilles

Opening the cardboard kennel
to reveal the shortbread canines within
there's plenty inside
so let's tuck in.

Westhighland Terrier shaped shortbread
with short legs,
you'll be begging for this biscuit
until Barbara Woodhouse tells you 'sit!'

How much were those doggies in the window
the ones with the edible tails?
a pound for the box of hounds
thank DOG for the January Sales.

Oh Spot the dog
he's man's best friend
we've woofed down his pals
and reached the end.

Biscuit: Sainsbury's Spotty Scottie Dogs Shortbread
Taste test: 9 out of 10
Cost: £1.00 from Sainsbury's in Christchurch
